Highlights From Last Week....
A peek at our learning this week...
In Reader's Workshop, we will learn how to take care of books and how the classroom library is organized. We will continue to practice turning and talking.
We did not start Writer's Workshop as anticipated last week, so this week in Writers Workshop, we will learn that we are all writers and how to hold a pencil properly.
In Math, we will work on finding hidden partners in numbers. For instance, in the number five, two hidden partners might be 2 and 3 or 1 and 4. The children love playing math detectives to find out the hidden partners in numbers.
In Phonics, we will be practicing letter sounds and learning the sight words "the" and "little", please practice these words at home.
In Science, we will be learning about our 5 senses and actually using our senses in experiments! This week we will be using our sense of taste.
In Social Studies, we will learn about families and create our very own family tree.
Mo Willems will be our featured author this week for our read alouds.
